As per WHO, 15% of the world’s population has some or the other form of disability. India alone has 26.8 million persons with disabilities as per Census 2011 which is 2.21% of the total population. People with disabilities face many challenges, starting from early education to employment to gaining respect in the society. Low education and skills results in just 0.1% getting linked to stable jobs. This has a negative impact of 5-7% on country’s GDP, according to ILO.

Disability sector needs to be looked at holistically. The objective of the webinar is to provide a distinctive opportunity for the leaders across different ends of the disability inclusion spectrum to share their insights on leadership, vision and strategy for diversity and inclusion. The narrative of the disability sector is impacted by several stakeholders and through this webinar we intend to bring them together to weave a story of impact along with best practices from the industry.

Key Takeaways:

  • The key challenges faced by the disability sector in India
  • Best practices from employers on hiring and onboarding youth with disabilities
  • Challenges and opportunities to invest in the disability sector as a funder
  • Interventions and programs on how to make your organization disability inclusive
